Simplicity 2446 - Great Jacket!

This has become a go-to jacket pattern for me. This is one of my latest projects- Simplicity 2446 (#S2446 Amazing Fit series). The pattern is fantastic. I think the fit works well. I will lengthen the jacket on the next make. I also plan to make this in several fabrics that will let me have some separates in jackets (Boucle, wool, etc).

The pants are #B5391 (view B). I also made a skirt from the same pattern. It makes for a great professional ensemble for work. The top is #M6963 (view A). They are older patterns in my stash.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?

Princess seams--they are my favorite. I also appreciated the 1-inch seam allowances. The pattern also has alternate pieces for different bra cup sizes. The fit is "Amazing Fit" series.

Fabric used: 

It's an eggplant wool blend. I love the fabric because it has a weave that looks like a pique. .

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:

None. The "Amazing Fit" series is great and offers alternate bra cup sizes. That's why I chose it. The fit really is great.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Yes, I plan to make several versions of this. On a recent FaceBook post, someone recommended I also try squaring off the front curves.


Good staple jacket as a wardrobe builder.
